On the old DC that holds the PDC Emulator role, run this these commands from a command line:

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /reliable:no /update
net stop w32time´╗┐
net start w32time

Then, transfer the PDC Emulator role to the new domain controller by following the instructions found here.

Finally, on the new PDC Emulator, run the following from the command line:

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:pool.ntp.org /syncfromflags:manual /reliable:yes /update
net stop w32time´╗┐
net start w32time
